Round 19 NSDP Notification
Round 19 IS NOW open and WILL close Friday 19th July 2019
The Australian Men’s Sheds Association (AMSA) manages the Australian Government Department of Health National Shed Development Programme (the NSDP) on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health. Under the NSDP, the Australian Government will allocate $1,000,000 (GST excl) in the 2019/2020 financial year. There will be two funding rounds each allocated $500,000 (excl GST).
The NSDP provides direct financial assistance to:
– assist to address the health and wellbeing of the Shed members
– support health improvements through a focus on the social determinants of health through national activities in relation to key population groups such as men
– deliver appropriate activities and programmes
– improve facilities and the sustainability of Men’s Sheds across Australia.
Funding is available for a wide range of items and services. Details are provided in the Round 19 Information Sheet
To reflect Government policy, priority is given to those Sheds in areas of greatest need e.g. regional, rural and remote and those that engage and meet the needs of members from the designated Priority Groups.
The NSDP is open to all Men’s Sheds in Australia, both members and non members of the AMSA. The applicant is not required to be a member of the AMSA.
All documentation required to lodge an application is now available
